VMware Workstation Pro 15 released

VMware Workstation Pro 15.0 was released yesterday evening. Recently I have been getting up to speed on vSphere 6.7, RHEL 7.5, Ansible Tower and the latest versions of the vRealize suite. I am excited to work with the new features in version 15!

What’s New

The following support is new in Workstation 15 Pro:

  • New Guest operating systems support
    • Windows 10 1803
    • Ubuntu 18.04
    • Fedora 28
    • RHEL 7.5
    • CentOS 7.5
    • Debian 9.5
    • OpenSuse Leap 15.0
    • FreeBSD 11.2
    • ESXi 6.7
  • DirectX 10.1
    DirectX 10.1 is an incremental update over DirectX 10.0. It provides higher visual quality through the support of multi-sample anti-aliasing (MSAA). DirectX 10.1 also supports Shader Model 4.1 and Cubemap Array.
  • Hardware version 16
    • DirectX 10.1 support
    • Graphics memory up to 3GB
  • REST API
    You can use Workstation RESTful API to automate common virtual machine tasks using standard JSON over HTTP or HTTPS. The following virtual machine operations are supported:

    • Virtual machine inventory management
    • Virtual machine power management
    • Virtual machine clone
    • Networking management
  • High DPI support
    High DPI related features require that the operating system of the host and virtual machine be Windows 10 version 1703 or later.

    • Host level high DPI support – The Workstation interface auto detects the host level DPI change and auto adjusts the layout to meet the new DPI.
    • Guest DPI synch with host – When there is a DPI change on the host side, the guest operating system adjusts its DPI to match the host DPI.
      VMware Tools 10.3.2 is required for this feature.
  • Hosts and Clusters view when you connect to vCenter
    Workstation 15 Pro adds a new Hosts and Clusters view when you connect to remote vSphere. The inventory tree now shows a hierarchical arrangement of objects in two different views: Hosts and Clusters and VMs. You can easily toggle between these two views with a single click.

    This is a Windows host only feature.

  • vSphere 6.7 support
    Workstation 15 Pro provides seamless support for vSphere 6.7. You can connect to a remote ESXi 6.7 host or vCenter Server 6.7 from Workstation 15 Pro to manage the remote the virtual machines running on vSphere. You can also upload a local virtual machine to vSphere 6.7 or download a remote virtual machine running on vSphere 6.7 to the local desktop.

    You can also deploy a VMware VCSA 6.7 (vCenter Server Appliance) OVA package to run on Workstation 15 Pro.

  • USB Auto connect to virtual machine
    USB devices can automatically connect to a powered on virtual machine when you configure Workstation 15 Pro to remember the connection rule.

    This is a Windows host only feature.

  • SSH login to Linux virtual machine
    You can now access Linux virtual machines using SSH provided by Workstation 15 Pro.
    This feature requires that the operating system of the host be Windows 10 version 1803 or later.
  • Enhanced User Experience
    • Stretch guest display
      The stretch guest display feature is enabled for Linux guests and Windows guests earlier than Windows XP. You can use the Keep Aspect Ratio Stretch feature to stretch the virtual machine display while maintaining the user interface aspect ratio or you can use the Free Stretch feature to stretch the virtual machine display to fill the user interface.

      This is a Windows host only feature.

    • Open virtual machine directory
      You can now easily access the virtual machine directory from a Windows host by right-clicking the virtual machine in the Workstation Pro library and selecting Open VM directory.

      Linux Workstation Pro already supports this feature.

  • Linux host Wayland support
    Workstation 15 Pro can now run on a Linux host Wayland desktop. To install Workstation Pro on a Wayland desktop, you must use terminal mode installation.
  • Performance improvements for virtual NVMe storage
